Take the Rait turn-off from the Dundee-Perth dual carriageway. Take the small unmarked road up Glen of Rait, and there's a convenient parking space opposite the gate leading in to a field with a rough track leading around the back of Beal Hill itself. There's an electric fence to be negotiated further in - take care!

Another one supplied by George Currie, he mentioned it on the Scotstone list and so I wandered out there today to have a look. It's definitely a disrupted four poster, though there are several other stones lying nearby - field clearance or part of something else? I'm not sure. George thought he saw a cup mark on one of the stones, but I'm not convinced. Nice little placement though, and ignoring the trees it sits on a little platform just below the summit of the hill.
